An Introduction to Digital Manuscript Studies
This workshop will teach both the theory and practice of working with manuscripts in the Digital Age. The purpose is to provide a taster of core DH theories and practice which have been tailored specifically to people working with manuscripts. Theoretical discussions will focus on the impact of digital technology on manuscript studies, and practical sessions will address the use of TEI XML to prepare editions of texts and catalogues of manuscripts, also providing a brief introduction to the digital imaging of books and documents. The workshop is aimed at PhD students and Early Career researchers and is sponsored by DiXiT (http://dixit.uni-koeln.de).
